Do you brave the crowds for Black Friday shopping?

My sister, my mother, my second mother, and a family friend wake up at like 3 am and head out to the stores for the Black Friday sales. They go to outlet stores, the mall, and I have no idea wherever else. I am not rich by any stretch of the imagination but I don't need to save money that badly. It just isn't worth it to me. I went to Kohl's many years ago at like 5 of 6 am and the line for the registers literally went around the entire store. No thank you. I do almost all of my shopping online anyway. I just have to buy my mother's birthday present. Her birthday is the day after Christmas and she is so difficult to buy for. Oh well. Only one more thing to deal with. Then I am home free except for the wrapping. I'm not so good at that part.

There's absolutely no reason to go into a crowded store to buy anything on Black Friday. You can get the exact same deals online. The reason people give me for going into the stores for the Bargains on Black Friday are ridiculous... Mostly I'm told that they need the item right then and can't wait for it to be shipped to them. People are so weird!

When I was younger I used to do most of my shopping in stores (but not on Black Friday). Today all my shopping is done online...what little I have to do. I love wrapping gifts. I miss not having a lot of people to buy for. It's such fun shopping for other people.
